México is a magical place with a multicultural heritage. It is the 11th most populated country in the world, with an estimated population of 121 million people. Its 2 million square miles make it the 14th largest country worldwide. It is also the 14th largest economy thanks to its thriving industry.
Mexican society combines many cultures from all over the world, but we remain proud of our original ancestors: Aztecs, Olmecs, Mayas, and Zapotecs to name a few. These mother cultures gave us an invaluable cultural legacy. Some of their cities, such as Tenochtitlán, were the largest and most active urban areas at the time of contact with European explorers. To this day, México’s urban centres and natural wonders entice people from around the world. México is the 10th most visited country by international tourists and the 1st in Latin America. México has 32 UNESCO World Heritage Sites (WHS),which include the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México’s Central Campus. México ranks 6th in the world for the most WHS sites, and 1st in all of America.
México’s last name could be Energy. The famous Mexican petroleum company Pemex supported the Mexican economy for many years and promoted the nation’s progress throughout the 20th century. Mexican students and scientists form part of a society ready to explore and spur on creative renewable energy endeavours, with sustainability as a top priority. Over the next decade we expect rampant growth in the world’s energy demand and Mexican companies, communities, and government are preparing accordingly.
